  1. A nifty little gaming card of good-old addictive goodness, and a bargain bin must-have if I ever saw one.
  2. A competent rehash of the Bejeweled formula, 7 Wonders of the Ancient World delivers a classic puzzle experience, but it doesn’t stray from the beaten path.
  3. 65
    Just to be clear, there’s very little that 7 Wonder of the World offers that’s lacking from every other DS puzzle game out there. It’s a Bejeweled clone that isn’t quite as polished or focused as that game.
  4. This version offers nothing that regular puzzle-players won't have seen before, bar some cute animation. [July 2008, p.73]
  5. Not at all ambitious, it settles for a familiar formula, just changing the scenario.
  6. 7 Wonders is a competent clone of a competent Bejeweled clone that does little to set itself apart.
  7. 7 Wonders has an interesting premise, and the tidbits you learn about the seven different wonders are fun to read, however interesting premises and random factoids don’t add up to a great game if the gameplay isn’t there.

    The game is a bit fun at first but soon becomes tedious. The graphics and gameplay both get overly repetitive. There's also no The game is a bit fun at first but soon becomes tedious.
